Our story begins 50 years ago, when a young priest running a world-renowned all-male university, decided Notre Dame would get into commercial television.

Some questioned 50 years ago why a prestigious Catholic university would want to get into the television business but Father Theodore Hesburgh knew then that this was going to be a very popular media and that it was the next step beyond radio and newspapers. He decided the University of Notre Dame could use a TV station to teach, and that meant the university owning its own station.

Fifty years ago, Father Hesburgh said, “Television will have a tremendous impact in the years and the centuries to come on the whole culture and educational values of our country. And we want to be part of that story.”

ABC 57

Sponsor Level: Bronze

WBND originally signed on the air as W58BT, channel 58, in 1990. During its first five years, the station aired regular Fox programming until 1995, when it picked up the ABC affiliation from WSJV, who dropped the network for W58BT`s Fox affiliation. They also changed their call letters to WBND that same year. During the 1990s, the station picked up a secondary affiliation with UPN. In 2002 they switched channels to 57 due to WSJV occupying the channel 58 frequency for its DTV signal, and in 2003 they lost their secondary UPN affiliation to WSBT`s UPN Michiana (now SBT2) digital subchannel.

In January 2008 the station began running an 11 minute long, 11pm newscast nightly. The newscast is produced and anchored by staff at WDJT-TV in Milwaukee. Like WDJT, ABC-57`s newscast puts emphasis on providing an early weather forecast. WBND is the third Weigel station to carry a newscast produced by WDJT, the others being their sister stations WMLW-CA and WYTU-LP. Local video is shot by photographers in South Bend and then transmitted to WDJT via satellite.

In early August 2008, Weigel Broadcasting agreed to sell all three of its South Bend stations, including WBND, to Schurz Communications, the longtime owner of the local CBS affiliate WSBT-TV, for undisclosed terms.[1] If this sale is approved by the Federal Communications Commission, WBND`s current newscast could be replaced by simulcasts of WSBT-TV`s newscasts since the station`s operations would move into WSBT`s new facility in Mishawaka (which opened in November 2008).

WHME TV - 46

Sponsor Level: Silver
WHME TV- 46 is part of the vision that the late Dr. Lester Sumrall received from God to own and operate television and radio stations so that Christian voices could not be silenced. It was revealed to him that there would come a time when Christian programmers would not be able to purchase airtime. Dr. Sumrall knew electronic media to be a powerful tool for evangelism and it was his vision that God`s Word be available for all to hear.

Everyday thousands of viewers in northern Indiana and southern Michigan tune to WHME TV- 46 for the best known and most watched family, ministry, and sports programming on the air anywhere.

LeSEA Broadcasting purchased WHME TV 46 in 1977. Since that time WHME TV 46 has been a 24hr full power Christian family television station. LeSEA Broadcasting is dedicated to serving the Michiana community with great ministry and entertaining programs for the whole family to enjoy.

WHME TV- 46 looks forward to making the digital transition with the Michiana community a seamless operation by still offering the same quality of programming.
